    17.7 million PDAs shipped in '06. Thanks to BlackBerrry!

    Global shipments of handheld computers rose 18.4 percent to 17.7 million in 2006, with Research in Motion Ltd.'s BlackBerry showing strong growth, but Palm Inc. suffering a steep decline in sales and market share, Gartner Inc. reported Tuesday.

    BlackBerry retained the top spot for PDA devices shipped, growing 10 percent to 3.5 million for the year, but its market share slipped from 21.3 percent in 2005 to just a shade below 20 percent during 2006, Gartner said.

    Will the 8800 launch this month help RIM retain or even increase their market share?

    I think it will blow RIMs market share sky high. It's all thanks to the pearl!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Rim didn't start with the pearl. And it didn't build a name for itself over the years with the Pearl either. My apologies for being a realist so late in the evening.
